Scripture Readings: Psalm 59, Numbers 26:35-65, Acts 23:12-35
Reflection Verse: Acts 23:30
30 When I was informed of a plot to be carried out against the man, I sent him to you at once. I also ordered his accusers to present to you their case against him.
Prayer: Father God, this Roman commander acted wisely on reliable information and moved Paul to a more secure and less hostile place. This forced the Jews to have to leave Jerusalem and go to a place where they had less influence to confront Paul. You have a way, Lord, of exposing evil, protecting those on Your assignments and changing the strategy toward justice and fairness. May I rest in You and Your care, Lord, when people seek to manipulate the system against me because of my witness for You. Thank You for Your protection and wisdom as You have prepared the way for me to preach, teach and witness to others of Your love for me and them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
